First, LinkedIn has finally figured out that Bend isn’t Eugene (yay!). Of course, they aren’t retroactively updating profiles, so even though you probably put your Bend zipcode into your profile, you’ll still be listed as being in the “Eugene, OR Area”. To remedy this, log into LinkedIn and edit your profile. In the location area you should see two options, one for Eugene and one for Bend. Select Bend and Save, and you’ll be good to go.
Unrelated to the above, this post by Peter Knego on age demographics on Stack Overflow (the premier Q & A site for software developers) is kinda interesting. Especially given (my purely subjective opinion) how we lean toward more “seasoned” professionals around here. The title, “Developers Get Better With Age”, is a tad misleading since I think the “better” is subject to interpretation. Regardless, this puts some interesting numbers on a phenomenon any “seasoned” software developer is surely sensitive to (including yours truely, who moves one tick to the right on that graph today!)
